Athletic Therapy


Project Description

Athletic Therapists are best known for their on-field emergency care of athletes.  As the first to respond when someone gets hurt, they are experts at injury assessment and rehabilitation.  That mix of on-site experience and active rehabilitation skills make Athletic Therapists effective in treating injuries of all patients, whether on the field or in the clinic. Athletic Therapists treat a wide range of patients, from kids with concussions to seniors recovering from hip replacement surgery, using various manual therapies, modalities, exercise prescription, electro acupuncture  bracing and taping.

At The Proactive Athlete our Athletic Therapists work in conjunction with Sports Chiropractors, Physiotherapists, Massage Therapists and Strength and Conditioning Coaches to help clients safely return to their usual activities. As an added benefit, our Athletic Therapists are also Registered Massage Therapists in the province of Ontario offering the advantages of two unique professions in one treatment visit.
